It’s that time of year again, fall is in the air and the holidays are around the corner, and starting off the festivities is Halloween. Don’t forget your commitment to you and your family’s health and smile! Just because you’re surrounded by candy and sugary goodies doesn’t mean you can’t have a healthy Halloween. Let’s look at some ways to get the most out of the holiday while protecting your pearly whites.

Instead of bowls of candy, you can treat yourself with healthy, snack-sized bags of pretzels, popcorn, dried fruit, nuts, pumpkin seeds, trail mix, or mini boxes of raisins. This works whether you keep bowls of these in your home or at the office. These are also great for giving out on Halloween night! Your neighbors (of all ages) will love you!

Speaking of Halloween, you can encourage your children with non-sugary treats as well. You can stock up on festive treats such as themed toothbrushes, pencils, erasers, stickers, temporary tattoos, glow sticks, play-doh, sticky spooky eyeballs and spider rings! You can enjoy the holiday season and still preserve your health and your pearly whites. With just a small amount of effort with a creative twist, you and your family can have an eerily Happy Halloween!
